Adair Meat Market in 1902

In this photograph William "Otis" Stephens is 14 years old. Stephens was born in 1888, and thus the photograph would have been taken around 1902. He is the smaller young man (without apron) and worked at the C.H. (Comodore H.) Adair Meat Market. In the 1900-1901 City Directory, C.H. Adair is listed as a clerk living at 407 South Walnut. The Moffett Drug Store (the building connected to the meat market in the picture) is at 125 E. Main Street. Unfortunately, Thomas Moffett passed away in May 1902, and the meat market is listed at the new location of 603 East Market Street in the 1903 City Directory.

*On the back of the photograph it states the meat market was located at the corner of Main & Oak which is likely across or diagonal from Turtle Park (Dari-Licious).
